Nesters since 2017
We are excited to have brought Nest to Richmond in early 2017, where we have an office in the historic Fan District. From there, we serve the City of Richmond, as well as Henrico, Chesterfield, Hanover, and Goochland counties. The office is located in a newly renovated complex that once served as the Greater Richmond Transit Company’s bus repair facility. The whole city block has been transformed into apartments and retail space that have brought life back to this section of Cary Street.
Our Core Values
There are a lot of real estate brokerages, but there is only one Nest. And there’s a reason for that. We were founded to be different. We live, work, and play under a philosophy that buying and selling property is about the client, not the transaction. We improve the home buying and selling experience by combining the latest technology and the best Brokers to make the process more transparent, more efficient, service-focused, and fun!
Richmond Lead Broker
Keith has spent his whole life in Virginia, and the last 22 years in Charlottesville with his wife. In mortgage banking when he moved to Charlottesville, he worked for a string of start up companies in sales and business development roles. Three of those companies went on to become successful acquisition targets, and the fourth is still a going concern. Following the completion of his MBA, Keith found his way back to real estate on the sales side, and along with partners Jonathan and Jim, Keith was a co-founder of Nest Realty. He has served as the firm’s Principal Broker since 2015.

Richmond Lead Broker
I moved to Richmond, Virginia, to pursue a degree in interior design in 2000. I met and married a Richmonder, which meant I was here to stay! In 2009, I decided to pursue real estate, and never looked back. With a commitment to direct and honest communication, and treating every client with kindness and patience, I grew into one of Richmond’s top agents. With a passion for this industry, much of my success is repeat business from happy clients and referrals to their friends and family. I look forward to helping you navigate your home purchase or sale with ease.

Partnering with Nest
Nest offers a true partnership and extraordinary value to each and every one of our Nesters. Our offering is a combination of technology, systems, services, and a brand that enables you to build a durable business and offer your clients a memorable experience.
Don’t think of us as a brokerage. Think of us as the creative, marketing, and operational teams in your corner, championing your real estate business.
Here’s the Nest foundation upon which you can continue to grow your business:
• Turnkey sphere nurturing with automated outreach
• Custom-built technology that streamlines your processes
• A client-facing transaction portal that empowers your clients
• Market intelligence that leads to smarter real estate recommendations
• An in-house marketing team that gives you creatives in your corner
The Nest Difference
As an agent, you work hard. You’re the CEO, accountant, and sales representative for your company. You work late hours, weekends, and holidays. Real Estate is stressful, and sometimes you bear the brunt of client frustrations.
Why should your brokerage work just as hard for you behind the scenes?
At Nest, our work isn’t done until we’ve provided our agents (and their clients) with the best tools, service and support the industry has to offer.
(And we don’t believe our job will ever be done.)
Design is a big piece of who we are. This doesn’t just refer to our logos, fonts, and colors. At Nest, it’s a way of thinking. Great design builds trust and nurtures relationships. But above all else, design helps strengthen our collective brand to help you stand out from your competition.
Tools and Technology
At Nest, we’re laser focused on providing you with the best systems and marketing. Our ever-evolving technology offerings enable you to efficiently and productively run your business. In addition, our personalized marketing support helps each and every one of our Nesters shine.
Community and Culture
You bring the hustle and the local knowledge. We bring innovative marketing that allows for a deeper connection with your community. Together, we elevate the level of service in the real estate industry.
Moving When the Time is Right
We understand that transitioning your business is a large endeavor—and most likely impacts your clients, friends, and family. That’s why we want to make this process as simple as possible, so you can get up and running quickly and easily. Here are a few ways we’ll help you make the switch:
WE’LL SET A TIMELINE
We’ll review your current listings and book of business, set a transition strategy, and then discuss a mutually beneficial timeline.
WE’LL SUPPORT YOU
We will be there for you every step of the way, making sure to walk you through the Nest processes and tools. We want you to succeed just as much as you do.
WE’LL HELP DOT THE I’S
No one likes filling out paperwork, but we’ve made it easy by pre-assembling your license transfer paperwork for you. Just grab a pen and let’s get going!
WE’LL HELP YOU SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS
You supply your client list and we’ll supply the marketing. We’ll help you send print, digital, and social media announcements sharing the exciting news that you’ve moved your practice.
